. >> welcome mayor lee. i want to get some of your thoughts around healthcare cost overall. question today, rising healthcare costs accumulating with fiscal liabilities represent significant challenge. >> our obligations for providing quality and affordable health care for our city employees without jeopardizing the city's fiscal solvency is a priority of mine in the challenge that we have to take together. this year will spend 574 million dollars fothe health care of our current employees retirees and dependents, about seven point eight percent of our city spending. in addition to annual bending for healthcare we have an equally significant issue on the horizon. the unfunded cost of paying for healthcare for all current employees once they retire. last november 2012 the city assessed our retiree health-care obligations an estimated the unfunded liability to be 4.4 billion dollars. over the past several years we have taking a number of important steps to address the structural budget issues associated with employee benefits in healthcare. in 2008 the city passed proposition c, charter am

restaurants that are not following the city's healthcare law. the long list. sharon tells us they are charging customers extra, but not giving all that extra money back to employees who deserve it. >> when you dine out in san francisco, you pay a little extra to help fund the worker's healthcare, but the city attorney says dozens of restaurants aren't using all that money for their employees. some people find it hard to swallow. >> i think it's terrible. as it is, the waiters and staff are letting off tips and don't normally get full benefits. >> they can stop charging 4.5% on my bill. >> san francisco city attorney is telling 50 restaurants to clean up their act in three months. >> by doing so, they can avoid litigation by my office for consumer fraud. >> we don't know which of the city's thousands of restaurants are under investigation, but we obtained a list of 100 who have taken more money than they paid out. in 2011, chef michael collected more than half a million dollars in healthcare surcharges. actually spent about $200,000 for employee's healthcare. for a profit of $327,000. the
healthcare, you have education. the key is, people don't know what that means. do i need to be a nurse, do i need to be a doctor, do i need to be a teacher? but the answer really is, if you are in customer service in healthcare, can you do data analysis in healthcare? can you do technology for the software programs that are in healthcare? a lot of it is the population going out and getting retrained in order to take the jobs that are needed. > so technology, that mantra is you really have to be training yourself for the jobs of the day. they're not around anymore, the kind of jobs that used to be. > > it's a different world. everything is different, right? styles change, jobs change. the problem is, if you have been doing the same thing for 20 years, 15 years, 30 years, and you're unemployed, the odds are you probably weren't that good at it to begin with. > tell me about temporary workers, temp-to-full-time. what about contractors? > > temping contracting is really bigger than it's been in the past five, six, seven years. companies are putting their foot in the water. they need people to do
's healthcare law, and the list is long. they are charging customers extra, but not giving all that extra money to the employees who it's supposed to go to. >> reporter: when you dine out in san francisco, you pay a little extra to help fund the workers healthcare, but the city attorney says dozens of restaurants aren't using all that money for their employees. some people find it hard to swallow. >> i think it's terrible. as it is, the waiters and staff are living off tips and don't normally get full benefits. >> they can stop charging 4.5% on my bill if it's not going to the right place. >> reporter: san francisco city attorney is telling 50 restaurants to clean up their act in three months. >> by doing so, they can avoid litigation by my office for consumer fraud. >> reporter: we don't know which of the city's thousands of restaurants are under investigation, but we've obtained a list of 100 who reported they have taken far more money than they have paid out in employee health costs. in 2011, chef michael minas' group collected more than half million
choices to reduce the cost of healthcare and the size of our deficit. we reject that america must choose between caring for the generation who built this country andng in the generation who will build its future. >> president obama's speech was very short on specifics. again, speaking about america's problems in general terms. >> now, more than ever, we must do these things together. as one nation and one people. >> tonight, the factor will analyze inauguration day with brit hume, bob woodward. john meacham, bernie goldberg, juan williams and mary katharine ham. caution, you where to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now. hi i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. inauguration address number 57. that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. first inaugural address given on april 30th, 1879 by george washington. not to the folks. washington spoke directly to congress. he appealed to the new leaders to be moral and just and he invoked god and heaven saying, quote: smiles of heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of
lines about climate change and mandates and healthcare. i didn't see any of the pamphlets. maybe it was some sort of a chip activated as soon as you walked through security. it was incredible. no one was able to think their own thoughts or articulate something original. that was why it was boring. >> i am glad i wasn't there. since he plans to stop climate change and provide more health insurance yet make no cuts to medicare or social security or much of anything, where is the money going to come from. the crowd didn't see a problem with that. >> he's a big spending president how does he curtail that. >> he's not the spending president. bush spent so much mown nobody said anything. >> he's not? >> no, i don't think so. >> have you looked at the -- >> i would like to differ with you on that. >> you can like to differ but it's not true. >> it is true when you look at how much -- if you look at how much president bush spends it is more than what obama spends. >> it took 8 years to get the united states where it is now it will take another 8 years to get it back. >> we can stop doing
choices to reduce the cost of healthcare and the size of our deficit. but we reject the belief that america must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and investing in the generation that will build its future. we will respond to the threat of climate change knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations we will defend our people and uphold our values through the strength of arms and rule of law. we the people, declare today that the most evident of truths that all of us are created equal equal, is the star that guides us still, just as it guided our forebears through seneca falls and selma and stone wall. for our journey is not complete until our wives our mothers and daughters can earn a living equal to their efforts. our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law. our journey is not complete until no citizen is forced to wait for hours to exercise the right to vote. our journey is not complete until we find a better way to welcome the striving, hopeful i
consumption. a big thing the chinese save for its health-care. if we can build a health-care system in china to create a safety net that frees up the link to go into domestic consumption. cheryl: to chinese employers pay for health care? >> no. rich: you think that model in the u.s. has to change? >> will change. we will see with the beginning of the exchange that the comes into the mario draghi. liz: employers will start saying can't cover it? >> it is different than that. what is happening is employers had passed off 50% of the increase in health-care costs to their employees. very slowly but surely employees are picking up larger and larger portions of health care. if the trend continues in the next five years employees will be paying as much for their health care as employers are so even if there's -- individuals will be shopping, they will be looking for the best deal and we will have a consumer market place regardless. liz: when you look at how the insurance industry has changed, what do you privately and i asking a of fox business viewers, what do you think we could do this so much be
that stems from the healthcare law and basically says that supermarkets have tollable all kinds of foods. they are get in big trouble if they don't. basically something that is unpackaged. from a bakery or the favorite cupcakes. the salad and food bars and hot bars out there. basically you have to label everything or what happens. >> if you don't label it supermarkets face thousands of dollars worth of fines and executives at supermarkets could be put in federal jails. >> shannon: you can go to jail if you don't label the foods correctly under the federal regulation? >> that is absolutely right. a sweeping regulation that affects thousands items in the supermarket. because of this we could see a number of items going away. i can guarantee that you that shoppers will see higher prices at the register. >> shannon: how does this work essentially? stems from the healthcare law but my understanding is this comes from the food and drug administration which has admitted that this didn't necessarily extend to supermarkets and grocery stores but they decided they are going to. >> that is absolute
rhetoric, about universal healthcare, and who should get that... should that be extended to the entire population? i think a good place to start is with the children. my god, we should be trying to take care of our children. you know, the issues about adults are very complex, and, you know-- many adults-- the reasons they're unhealthy are because of things they do themselves or do to themselves. but kids are incredibly vulnerable, and i would think it would have to be a priority of ours to try and protect and ensure their health. marc shiffman: there are too many people out there... who are senior citizens-- fixed low income. medicare is their only insurance, and as they get older, as they get sicker, as they need more medications, they are having to make difficult choices. - hi. how are you doing today? - hello, mrs. phillips. - how are you? - it's good to see you. my social worker spends some time almost every day calling up drug companies, filling out forms to get special dispensations for medications. people break pills in half to stretch them, or they just go without because they'
in san franciscan mean you will pay extra for a healthcare surcharge. we broke this story exclusively several months ago that restaurants were collecting cash from customers but not making it available to employees. our investigation first uncovered a few restaurants that were breaking the law. today, we're learning from the city attorney the problem is more widespread. part of the dining experience in san francisco is paying a little more to help cover your server's healthcare. >> we're here today to announce -- >> reporter: but according to the city attorney, many restaurants will be breaking the law. he is now telling nearly 50 of them to clean up their acts or get charged with fraud. >> they charge surcharges to be in compliance with san francisco's universal healthcare law but use little or none of the funds to provide healthcare benefits to employees. >> reporter: he won't disclose the names of the restaurants under investigation but sent out warning letters giving them three months to come forward. we have obtained a list of nearly 100 rest
's healthcare system to the extraordinary standards of excellence it once enjoyed. over my shoulder here you can see the u.s. capitol building. in that building 535 elected representatives from every corner of america come together to debate the issues of the day. they are men and women from every religious, ethnic and family background. i look forward to watching libya develop equally strong institutions of government. education and healthcare are just two of the many areas where i see opportunities for close partnership between the united states and libya. i look forward to exploring those as we work together to build a free democratic prosperous libya. see you soon. >>> good afternoon, everyone. i'm an san francisco mayor ed lee. i want to welcome you from the bay area, from all over the country to san francisco's city hall. today we honor and celebrate ambassador john christopher stevens in this civic celebration of his life. i thank the stevens family for hosting this celebration here. amongst his many friends, his family, his colleagues from around the world who continue to reremember and
in 365 days. with no presidential election, no stimulus programs on the horizon and healthcare reform upheld, 2013 should be smooth sailing for the economy, right? to almost no one's surprise, it's not that simple. despite that, in our cover story, we found a few people willing to stick their necks out and share with us their predictions. most everyone we found had reason for measured optimism. housing prices, for example, are going up. "there's hope that you can climb out. that's just a game- changer." and that opens up housing- related investment, which in turn may help stocks. "i see certain sectors helping the stock market. i see that true of the housing sector. look at real estate, look at building supplies, things that have been down in the past." as for jobs, john challenger says though the economy has been adding an average of 150,000 jobs a month, we may not need that many to make unemployment itself go down. the reason - baby boomers. "there are many more baby boomers retiring, so we don't need nearly as many new jobs as we did a decade ago." as for overseas trade, china's e
socially, and human suffering, but economic suffering in terms of the health-care consequences and costs. long before a child even crosses the threshold of kindergarten, that child is potentially truncated because they are food insecure, they are hungry, their families to not have enough money for food. i went to pick back up on you, congressman gingrich -- when you say our programs do not work, you are absolutely wrong. i come from a tradition of science, a scientific background. i do scientific research on hunger and have been doing that for 15 years. i want to tell you, the food stamp program is one of the single most important programs that we have in this country. [applause] thank you. we know that food stamps prevent hospitalization for children. it is a good investment. think about pediatric hospitalization, it costs $24,000 for three days. that same amount of money could feed a family of four for one year. that is a great investment because it prevents hospitalization. it promotes job development, cognitive, social, emotional development, so by the time children are in school the
of entitlement programs. >> we must make the hard choices to reduce the cost of healthcare and size of the deficit. we reject that they must choose between caring that built the country. >> like every president since fdr, mr. obama started his day early, with a prayer service at st. john's church. before departing the white house for the longest motorcades known to man for the rise to the capital. a star-studded affair. where else do you see paul ryan mingling with jay-z and beyonce who belted out the national anthem. >> the ceremony was over there was a stream of pomp and circumstance waiting. >> from signing papers to officially nominate the new cabinet to lunch with congressional leaders. then, of course, the parade. the first family could make the way back to the white house in that grand bulletproof review stand. yet all of that could wait because leaving the west front of the capitol, the president went off script to take in the vista of the national mall. mr. obama seemed to be taking in the moment. overheard saying he would never quite see this view again. as the president i
own purdum much. we need to build a health-care system that is about -- today, it is all about aging and affluence and diabetes and health care. for the future, it must connect to the internet. mobile internet is the most important technology on the planet. and it has to serve the largest group of health-care workers in the world. and that is not doctors and nurses. they are outnumbered 10 to one by informal family caregivers. that is, you and the caring for kids, our parents, our brothers and sisters. that is a group that has to address, consumers. and number three, number one engagement transaction for consumers that they do every day, that they think and they believe and they know will keep them well is to swallow their daily pill. if you think about these massive transitions that have occurred in financial services, retail, commerce, the key is to find a transaction that consumers already engaged in that that is something they want or need to do. just like in financial services, they digitize banking by having people pay their bills and trade their stocks on line. we have digitiz

not know if the health-care cost dragon has been slain or is just hibernating. how much of the slow increase comes from the sluggish economic recovery where people without insurance postpone care over which they don't have any kind of discretion at all, and what about the chronic conditions that continued the development of more sophisticated and expensive treatments and tasks? and for the most expensive health care program there is the fact that 10,000 baby boomers are joining me in the over 65 club every day. despite the encouraging numbers about 2011 there is still a lot about this issue to be discussed and analyzed. and here we are with what i think is going to be a very good program on that topic. we are fairly pleased to have, as our partner in today's program, the commonwealth fund. and we are especially pleased to have as our co-moderator today, dr. david blumenthal. i will mention that his policy an analyst -- on top of his policy and analytical expertise he is a care -- welcome to your first online briefing as the head of commonwealth. we are pleased to have you here. >> i
it is the cleveland clinic with 28 doctors and healthcare professionals. some 48,000 employees. 4.6 million patient visits. it is the envy worldwide of many hospitals and health care clinics. toby cosgrove runs the whole thing. i want to start here in davos with the question, whose model do you respect? >> there are a lot of places that do it really well. mayo clinic. we are very similar organizations. i am a shameless dealer of great ideas. liz: do you go in and watch they'll clinic surgeries? >> four years i went around the world to find new surgical tech takes. now i encourage all of my physicians to go someplace at least once a year to find new technologies. even if they are going and looking at an assembly line. do something to understand a new set of ideas to try to bring innovation to healthcare. liz: you just told me that last night, you had dinner with john chambers of cisco and a top executive from microsoft. >> we were talking about big data and how it is coming together and how we can use this to our advantage. if you take all of the data in the world, 95% of it has been created in the
abortion healthcare. being from the south i grew up in birmingham, alabama. it became clear to me that there was one clinic in the state of mississippi, and given that it's a woman's right between her and her healthcare provider, there was one clinic and at that time one doctor providing services led me to being committed to traveling to mississippi to serve the women from my region of the country because without access to providers who provide the care, roe v. wade means nothing if there is no one there to provide the care. >> cenk: it's an interesting story that people may not be familiar with. you were opposed to doing abortions earlier in your career. what changed your mind. >> i grew up in the south and i had a very traditional understanding. i'm a spiritual person and i had traditional spiritual understanding, and in that understanding initially for me it was a question of my own morality about whether or not to provide the service once i decide to become a physician. i never questioned a woman's right to choose but over time i wrestled with this, and after 12 years of havin
or a allow the federal government to control commerce including healthcare. the president believes in equality. that would be nice. equality is great. if there is a heaven, i assume we will see it there. on earth, equality is impossible. you cannot equate an american who holds a ph.d. with a high school dropout. no matter what president obama tells us the two will never be equal in the market place. therefore, the president seems to want to change the marketplace, putting the federal government in charge of who gets what. even in the private sector. now, yesterday, he confidently stated that his so-called progressive view will bring the nation prosperity. but it has not and it will not. in fact, if america continues down the big spending road, this country could well go bankrupt. a very interesting question is why are so many americans accepting president president os vision when less than 30 years ago president reagan was the political icon? with reagan in mind. president obama made his stand. >> this was a declaration that his interest is to restore us to the liberal of 60 years
states of america, barack obama. applause [bleep] >> well, forget the healthcare law. this might be an even bigger deal for you. the president and hillary clinton sitting down for their first joint interview. the president just -- he hasn't done a joint interview with anyone other than the first lady, a sign joe says might be a go -- no-go for 2016. i don't suspect he is happy about this. >> i don't think so. maybe joe biden will drive the two of them to the interview. i don't know. but, look, biden obviously would like to be president obama's successor. one assumes hillary clinton would like to be that successor, and so who gets that first joint interview outside the first family? hillary clinton. joe biden can't be pleased with that. >> the timing is very interesting, is it not? >> well, this is hillary hillary clinton's val disk. i assume this is president obama's way of saying hale and farewell' and thank you for a job well done. it brings up a bigger question. president obama, if both of these two candidates run, is going to have to make a choice. either have to endorse one

it is for 13,000 pages. this will restrict our ability in life-saving medical devices. that is just healthcare. now the president is implementing his agenda. we will see that the benefits are far less than advertised. the costs of this agenda are huge. we spend when chilean dollars more than we take in each year. we spend $1 trillion more than we taken each year. we cannot keep that up. that is a moment where our economy stalls. we will have to convince the country to change course. we had to reform entitlements. we had to revisit the healthcare law. clearly president obama does not want us to get that chance. he want his last two years to look just like his first two years of his presidency. it was to perpetuate progressive government for at least a generation. why? he thinks it is the right and to do. to do that, he needs to delegitimize the republican party and house republicans, in particular. he will try to divide us. he will try to get us to fight with each other, question each other so we do not challenge him. if we play into his hands, we will betray the voters who supported us in the
of production but they do control it. that's what is happening with the healthcare program and these reforms. so i would say the systems are becoming more fascist. >> john: that will make me feel so bad when i buy a $9 of coke at whole foods. mackey said he regreeted using the word fascist because it has so much baggage to it. in a similar confused state sean hannity and a guest likened obama's push for sensible gun control in our nation to the rise of hitler and stalin. >> i think it's disgraceful that he used children to advertise that we're gonna remove all these guns. i mean, if you go back to the 1930s with hitler, he did the same thing. >> isn't that--isn't that what we with don't talk a lot about? what were the intentions of our founders and framers? we have stalin, we have hitler countries tyrannical. they talked a lot about that. >> john: that was right wing guy comparing a non-right wing president to right wing hitler. i wonder what inigo montoya would say to these two gentlemen and think definitions. >> i do not think it means what you think it does. >> john: joining us to discuss one
of expanding our healthcare system under the affordable care act are unknown. ignoring unknown unknowns would be folly. they're known unknowns. that's how we plunge into a decade of deficits. recall the story of genesis and the dream of seven cows. fat, flesh and wealth fever came out of the river followed by seven other cars, lean flesh and ill favored. the lean cows ate up the fat cows. the pharaoh could not endure that the seven fat cows were seven years of great plenty and seven lean cows were seven years of famine would immediately follow. the pharaoh took the advice of joseph and stored great quantities of grain during the years of plenty. when famine came, egypt was ready. the people who have given us seven years of extra taxes, let us follow the wisdom of joseph, pay down our debts and store up reserves against the leaner times that will surely follow. in the midst of the great depression, franklin roosevelt said there's a mysterious cycle in human events. to some generations, much is given. of other generations, much is expected. this generation has a rendezvous with destiny. we, rig
your healthcare. really? i want to have those conversations, not to be confrontational, but to understand what the other side is saying, and i'd like to arm our viewers with the ability to argue with their conservative uncle joe over the dinner table. but when joint pain and stiffness from psoriatic arthritis hit even the smallest things became difficult. i finally understood what serious joint pain is like. i talked to my rheumatologist and he prescribed enbrel. enbrel can help relieve pain, stiffness, and stop joint damage. because enbrel, etanercept suppresses your immune system, it may lower your ability to fight infections. serious, sometimes fatal events including infections tuberculosis lymphoma, other cancers, and nervous system and blood disorders have occurred. before starting enbrel your doctor should test you for tuberculosis and discuss whether you've been to a region where certain fungal infections are common. don't start enbrel if you have an infection like the flu. tell your doctor if you're prone to infections, have cuts or sores have ha
